11Portland has a record of 11-5-7 in MLS matches against the Quakes. The 11 wins are tied for the most by the Timbers against a single opponent in MLS regular-season play.

2009 The Timbers are playing the same opponent in consecutive road regular-season matches for the first time as an MLS club. The last time the club has played consecutive road matches against the same opponent was in 2009 when Portland drew and beat Miami FC in USL. 

501 Goalkeeper Steve Clark has recorded 501 saves in his seven MLS seasons. The Oakland University product is the 24th goalkeeper in MLS history to reach 500 saves in a career.
